after saving for a good few months (and a bit of ebay luck) i finally got my hands on the fuji x10! i’ve wanted a fully featured and versatile smaller camera for a long time now, and the x10 was probably by far the best camera in my current budget. i got it for £140 on ebay, but these were about £400-£500 when they were new in 2011.
i’ve only had it since saturday, but i have to say i think it’s a fantastic and beautiful camera (look at it!) that i will grow to love in time. it’s the perfect size for my small hands, and it feels fantastic thanks to its build quality.
i mostly wanted a smaller camera so i had no excuse to not have a camera with me. i love my 650d but as we all know, DSLRs are a bit cumbersome to carry around everywhere. being the fusspot i am, i didn’t want just a point and shoot compact, but a compact camera that has full manual controls, RAW shooting, and a good, fast lens. the fuji x10 does not disappoint on any of these terms!
anyway, i’m not trying to write a review ..i just wanted to show you some of my first photos with the x10. it was incredibly overcast and was beginning to get dark when i took it out, and it held up excellently.
